Palmer Parts Ways with Razorfish

For whatever reason, the Razorfish camp has been unusually unresponsive since we started inquiring about this last week, but yes, it appears that executive creative director Rob Palmer has left the Publicis Groupe agency after nearly three years. Palmer, who served as ECD at Razorfish West but actually worked out of his home turf in Boise, initially joined the agency as creative director after co-running his own shop, Mitchell + Palmer. From what spies are telling us,Palmer’s recent departure preceded yet another round of cuts–though relatively small this time around–at Razorfish (we’re hearing anywhere from 5-10).

Anyhow, prior to Razorfish, Palmer spent some time as a CD on eBay while at Goodby, worked in a similar role at BBDO and served as CD for several years at W+K on accounts like ESPN and Nike.
